Early in his career, he spent 15 years as head-chef at LaCaille. He loved his work and the people with whom he worked as a Structural Steel Detailer at Mountain View Steel Detail. Randy loved children, and he was magical with them. Everyone loved Randy. He is known for his mathematical and computer skills, helping "kids" of all ages with any of their needs; homework, computers, programming, etc. His love of history and politics kept life interesting for those around him, and always kept the conversation going! As self-proclaimed by Randy, his passion in life was his family. He was always there to take care of people and provide assistance. His other passions were Deep Sea Fishing, Ice Fishing, Fishing, Fishing, Hunting, Four Wheeling, Golf, and sports of any kind. The speed at which he was able to read, and the ability he had to understand and maintain the information he read was extraordinary. Randy, we loved you, and we will always love you. Randy, we miss you. Your time with us was too short. You had a beautiful heart, and a beautiful soul. God bless you.
